A Surly Tasting and the Return of Doug's Very Noddy Lager!

Friday, October 29 is going to be a great beer day at Buckbean!
Doug's Very Noddy 40th Birthday Lager, better know as the Very Noddy Lager, unleashes to the patrons of holiday ales. This amazing beer that packs quite a punch (10.5% ABV) won Bronze at the prestigious 2010 World Beer Cup as one of 44 beers entered in the "Other Strong Beer" category. We are going to celebrate this release with $2 pints of ALL beers on tap, but the Very Noddy should be your first stop.

As if the Very Noddy Lager wasn't enough to be excited about, we will also be offering you the change to try four beers from Minnesota's Surly Brewing Company, one of our favorite canned breweries around. We'll have offerings of the Bender, Coffee Bender, Cynic Ale and Bitter Brewer. If you attended CANFEST you can get a free tasting of all the beers; if not, it's only $1.00 to try the brews. You will also have the chance to buy the beers for $1.00/can. Please note: cash only transaction- all the money goes to the non-profit Great Basin Bird Observatory.

Come down anytime tomorrow and kick in the fall season with some awesome local & out-of-area brews!
